The Busti Historical Society announces Summerfest, set for Sunday June 27. All community members are invited to the society’s grounds! Summerfest will be held from 11 am to 5 pm and held rain or shine.

With the cancelation of the annual Busti Apple Fest in 2020, the Busti Historical Society began brainstorming ways they could offer an event in 2021, that would both fill the fundraising gap left while creating a way to celebrate the 4th of July.

Planning began last August, with the uncertainty of Covid regulations. With recent changes in state regulations regarding gatherings, the Summerfest can be safely held.

The Summerfest will feature over 30 craft and local vendors, as well as a variety of food and activity options.
